Childhood Cancer Awareness Month (CCAM) is recognized every September by childhood cancer organizations across the country to increase awareness and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and cure.
Our goal is to raise awareness for childhood cancer and funds for research to support the children, families, and communities who have been affected. We encourage everyone to Go Gold during the month of September to honor the brave kids who are battling cancer!
